This rustic farmhouse is the home of Houston-based antiques dealer Liz Spradling, designed by CTA Architects Engineers in Jackson, Wyoming. The home is decorated with a mix of finds from her Houston boutique—antiques and vintage pieces selected from trips to Europe. Her selections are time worn and rustic with eye-catching patinas. They work well in this Western vernacular without feeling too authentic.
The architects designed an open floor plan with a great room, kitchen, dining room and reading nook all within view from one another. The concept was to be able to entertain family and friends and have a nice flow between spaces to easily connect with each other.
The interiors feature plaster walls, a nod to Old World style. While antique wood ceiling beams were reclaimed from a local ranch, infusing a timeless, rustic charm. Additional unique highlights includes the flooring in the entryway and mudroom of the home, salvaged from Chicago streets.
A nuetral color palette was selected to highlight Spradlings’ exquisite antique furnishings and accessories. She selected fabrics that were highly textural instead of using patterns. Her design concept was to bring attention to the furnishings, with each piece telling a story. Despite the eclectic mix of geographical finds, the home’s style feels fresh and cohesive.
What We Love: This beautiful farmhouse features a stunning mix of vintage and antique finds. The beautiful views surrounding the home are captured through expansive windows, acting as art. An open and cohesive floorplan creates a fluid flow that lends to a comfortable living environment.

Design Advice: Spradling has stated that mixing styles and eras together is the best way to give your home depth and appeal. Since your eye can get lazy, you need visual interest. Industrial pieces will help antiques to be more visually intriguing. Modern art can look fabulous set atop of an 18th-century table.
